About this course

Electrical and electronic engineering plays a significant role in modern society. From the electricity that powers our lives to the mobile phones that enable communication and provide entertainment, the technologies around us inspire wonder. Highly trained engineers are needed to specify and design such systems and devise electronic engineering solutions for future challenges such as electric transportation, renewable energy generation, robot systems and medical diagnostics. A Bachelor of Engineering degree can provide access to exciting global opportunities.

This programme is accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). Our degrees are offered as three-year BEng (Bachelor of Engineering) or four-year MEng (Master of Engineering) qualifications. Our MEng qualification is designed to satisfy the academic requirements set by the Engineering Council UK for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). It is also currently under review for full accreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Council Malaysia (EAC).

Chartered engineers enjoy excellent prospects, enhanced employability and high salaries. If you prefer to graduate with a BEng after three years of study, your degree will provide partial fulfilment of the necessary academic requirements for Chartered Engineer Status.

Our MEng programme is accredited and recognised by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM). Graduates from this programme are eligible for registration with BEM under the Electrical Discipline.

For registration by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM), the four-year undergraduate MEng programme plus a summer industrial placement are required.
